«Patterson Hood» - «Old Timer's Disease»

Old Timer's Disease
In 42, my granddad was drafted by the Army
They sent him off to fight over in Germany
Left my grandma at home with a brand new baby boy
And my mom was born the day they bombed Hiroshima
And not long after that, my granddad got to meet her

Got a job and commuted from Alabama to Kentucky
But still he would have told you he was lucky
Just to watch his pretty bride push them babies down the street
And the way that the cars all backed up behind her

But Granddad's lost his mind cause he'd rather not remember anymore
And he refuses to stop driving, so Grandma's locked his keys next door
And he spends his days just looking around
Looking around
But he's forgotten what he's looking for
He's forgotten what he's looking for
